“Great hotel”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

I spent 3 wonderful weeks at the Residenza. It is a small hotel with a close knit staff who make you feel like part of an extended family. My room was spacious and the breakfasts were all freshly made and delicious.

This six-bedroom place is perfect if you don't need all the trappings of a 4-5 star hotel and are keen to experience a more 'local' experience of Rome. Charming/eclectic neighbourhood with masses of bars and restaurants to choose from - and a good jumping off point (on foot, bus or tram) for all the sights. It was always relaxing to get back to Trastevere and the Residenza after a day of high Roman culture. Rooms and bathrooms are slightly tired looking but clean and absolutely fine for the price. Friendly, informal, knowledgeable staff; they are not there all the time and you often let yourself in and out with a special key code. But fellow guests (to be found congregating in the one wifi hotspot) keep the place feeling congenial in the absence of staff.

What a lovely hidden spot amidst the bustle of this incredible city. We were without our luggage for three days and without our son who "forgot" his passport for our family vacation. So the trip started a bit bumpy. However, the staff at the hotel namely Hussain, constantly offered to help us through the labyrinth of issues. The hotel was the anchor to make the beginning of our trip great. I can not say enough about the staff, the charm and incredible location of this terrific hideaway! Thank you.

I travel to Rome once a year for work. I am a study abroad adviser and spend a few days in Rome with my students to conduct an arrival orientation. This is my second stay at Residenza and it was just as pleasant as my last visit two years ago (last year I stayed at their sister location Hotel Santa Maria, which is a little bigger and also quite nice). The staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and clean with modern, spacious bathroom. Room also has a safe, which I like. They provide a complimentary breakfast, which is tasty and satisfying with a good variety of options to choose from. I don't like to eat a huge breakfast, so I enjoyed the option to eat light. They do have free WiFi, which works best in the lobby and lounge areas. The building is old (it's Rome, so pretty much all buildings are old) and the walls are very thick concrete, so WiFi may not make it to your room. I didn't find this to be a problem, as I did not spend that much time in my room or in need of the internet. But it's nice to know it's available if you want it. The location is excellent. Trastevere is a wonderful, lively neighborhood to stay in whether you are coming to Rome on vacation with your family or travelling alone on business. I highly recommend this hotel.

This is a wonderful small hotel located very close to Piazza Santa Maria in the heart of Trastevere. The large rooms are clean, well appointed and comfortable. The staff is wonderful; very friendly and helpful.Good breakfast. We have stayed in several other Trastevere B+Bs but will return to Residenza Santa Maria.

This is a great place, just around the corner from Piazza Maria di Trastevere in the middle of everything. Nice clean rooms, friendly staff and a good breakfast with parma, salami, cheese and scrambled eggs.
We will be back!

Spending four November nights in the centre of Trastevere was a real treat for us. We liked the room, the breakfasts and the friendly and helpful staff a lot. We will choose to return here next time we visit Rome.

The Residenza San Calisto ( previously know Residenza Santa Maria), is a small exclusive Hotel de charme, located I the heart of Rome, just a stone's from the magnificent and picturesque square of Santa Maria in Trastevere.

Thanks to great location, from the Residenza Santa Maria, guests can easily reach the main tourist sites like Campo de' Fiori, Navona Square, the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi's fountain, the Roman Forum and Coliseum with just a relaxing stroll through a maze of fascinating medieval streets. The Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Square are a few minutes away. Furthermore Trastevere, apart from the beauty of its mediaeval narrow little streets, is filled with typical restaurants, markets, pubs and cafes.The Residenza Santa Maria also offers services like transfer to and from the airport, private guided tours, laundry service, shiatsu massage, beauty centre, baby sitting service and car and scooter hire, as well as offering free use of bikes to its personal guests. ... more   less
